MILAN — To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company’s collaboration with Hollywood, Salvatore Ferragamo has tapped Colombian designer Edgardo Osorio, the founder and creative director of high-end shoe label Aquazzura, to design a footwear capsule collection hitting stores at the end of November.
Inspired by Salvatore Ferragamo’s iconic models, the capsule includes 12 styles featuring a combination of different materials, including patent leather, suede, napa and cork, and embellished with a range of decorations, such as bows, lace, wings, stones and feathers.
“Edgardo’s South American culture and his sophisticated creative aesthetic embody Ferragamo’s lifestyle,” said Salvatore Ferragamo creative director Massimiliano Giornetti. “The collection perfectly reinterprets the real spirit of Salvatore: ironic, playful, attentive to details, creative with a touch of originality, all combined with comfort and luxury.”
“For me it’s an honor to reinterpret the extraordinary style of Salvatore Ferragamo for a new generation of women,” Osorio said. “This collaboration is very important for me because it marks the first 10 years of my career, which started in Ferragamo at 19: my first job in the world of luxury footwear.”
